Hot Boy Card / TCP Tuesday Challenge - TCPTUES58

The very creative Susan Liles, is hosting this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge. Susan is challenging us to ink up our TCP It's A Mod, Mod World stamps. This set has a bunch of FUN looking stamps with a retro theme to them, plus it comes with Poochie, Sprinkles and Fifi in a few different sizes, to fit any idea.

I combined this challenge with this week Simon Says Stamp Challenge, perfectly themed "One for the Boys". I thought this stamp set was just right for this challenge too, since I find myself using this set on masculine cards - which are never easy for me to do :).

This is my take on this week's challenges:

I took my inspiration straight out of Susan's card (thank you!!!) - I just had to use that spaceship with Poochie as the navigator :) - especially after I found this space PP on the DCWV All About Boys Stack that had some FUN colors to pull from and fit nicely with the boy's theme. I added silver brads to the grey moon and emulated the silver glitter circles of the base PP on the spaceship. Used silver liquid pearl on Poochie nose to match the silver brads. The base card is from DCWV Alphabet Stack - I like the silver glitter along with the black, grey and white colors - a gift that I found great uses for despite not using all the monogram letters :).

I found the glitter irresistible to use even on a masculine card. But with planet/spaceship boy's theme, silver glitter just worked :)

Have a great weekend!
